Wilco's Jeff Tweedy Releases Solo Single 'I'll Sing It'
The song, titled "I'll Sing It" is part of an album that Glide reports will be released on Sept. 16 and be called Sukierae. The album will feature 20 new songs written by Tweedy and performed with his 18-year-old son Spencer on drums.
"When I set out to make this record, I imagined it being a solo thing, but not in the sense of one guy strumming an acoustic guitar and singing," Tweedy said. "Solo to me meant that I would do everything - write the songs, play all the instruments and sing. But Spencer's been with me from the very beginning demo sessions, playing drums and helping the songs take shape. In that sense, the record is kind of like a solo album performed by a duo."
In the meantime, Tweedy fans can catch him on a string of solo tour dates kicking off today. Grab the dates and listen to the new song here.
